From optoribogenetics to HelioRiboGenetics (7)

Charting a Coronavirus Infection 10/5/20 “After months of downplaying the threat of the Covid-19 pandemic, President Trump…” …was vindicated when Roger Penrose won a Nobel Prize in Physics on October 6, 2020.  In 1991, Penrose indirectly linked food energy from quantum coherence to coherently organized biology via God’s claims in Biblical Genesis.

From optoribogenetics to HelioRiboGenetics (6)

“How often do we still hear that quantum effects can have little relevance in the study of biology, or even that we eat food in order to gain energy?” 8/8/91 2020 Physics Nobel Laureate, Roger Penrose linked the answer to his rhetorical question from physics to chemistry and molecular biology via the refutation of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense and Big Bang cosmology. Quantum coherence has since been linked to coherently organized biology. See: MicroRNAs organize intrinsic variation into stem cell states…

UV light, H2O, and epigenetic effects… (3)

Trump nominates conservative Amy Coney Barrett for Supreme Court She would be the only justice on the current court not to have received her law degree from an Ivy League school. The eight current justices all attended either Harvard or Yale. Most researchers at Harvard and Yale failed to admit, and failed to teach their students, that God’s Creation of UV light and water biophysically constrains viral latency across kingdoms via oxidative phosphorylation. They are being forced to tell the…

The microRNA-mediated fight against COVID-19 (1)

History (1) Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model (2013) …the epigenetic ‘tweaking’ of the immense gene networks that occurs via exposure to nutrient chemicals and pheromones can now be modeled in the context of the microRNA/messenger RNA balance, receptor-mediated intracellular signaling, and the stochastic gene expression required for nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution. History (2) Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations: from atoms to ecosystems (2014 unpublished) This atoms to ecosystems model of ecological adaptations links nutrient-dependent epigenetic effects on base pairs and amino…

Coherently organized healthy longevity (2)

RNA-mediated.com Here you will find information that links physics, chemistry, and molecular epigenetics via RNA-mediated events such as the de novo creation of olfactory receptor genes in order to encourage a public discussion of a paradigm shift. Within 8 hours from the time I posted Coherently organized healthy longevity (1) to my blog site at RNA-mediated.com, Quanta Magazine regurgitated this claim from 1/3/19 Quantum error-correcting codes are essential for protecting information in quantum computers. They may also be responsible for…

Coherently organized healthy longevity (1)

A large-scale binding and functional map of human RNA-binding proteins [RBPs] 7/29/20 We describe the spectrum of RBP binding throughout the transcriptome and the connections between these interactions and various aspects of RNA biology, including RNA stability, splicing regulation and RNA localization. These data expand the catalogue of functional elements encoded in the human genome by the addition of a large set of elements that function at the RNA level by interacting with RBPs. Reported as: ENCODE consortium identifies RNA…

pH-dependent viral latency (5)

Molecular and biochemical mechanisms of human iris color: A comprehensive review 6/2/20 MicroRNAs also affect melanocyte synthesis, which is usually affected by the downregulation of essential genes involved in pigmentation. Researchers from Iran linked light-activated microRNA biogenesis in plants to the expression genes that effect the number, size and/or the pH of pathways that influence melanin synthesis in the context of human iris color and human skin pigmentation via the L‐tyrosine amino acid precursor. The energy-dependent microRNA-mediated link from the…

The microRNA-mediated future of humanity (3)

Light-activated microRNA biogenesis has been linked from the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction to healthy longevity via protection from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA in all living genera. On 4/21/20 that fact was misrepresented as: Coronavirus has mutated into at least 30 different strains, Chinese study finds. The report was based on this non-peer-reviewed paper Patient-derived mutations impact pathogenicity of SARS-CoV-2 We observed intrapersonal variation and 6 different mutations in the spike glycoprotein (S protein), including 2 different SNVs that…

WHO’s ignorance: From roots to shoots (2)

WHO’s ignorance: From roots to shoots (1) Amino acid substitutions within or near the active site of the viral neuraminidase (NA) may affect influenza virus fitness. See: Neuraminidase inhibitor susceptibility and neuraminidase enzyme kinetics of human influenza A and B viruses circulating in Thailand in 2010–2015  The authors cite the World Health Organization’s Summary of neuraminidase amino acid substitutions associated with reduced inhibition by neuraminidase inhibitors” The summary is available as a pdf download.
